While vocabulary and grammar are my strong suits, I know I can continue to acquire new skills to build on the knowledge I already have. With more practice, I can surely sharpen my writing faults until they become strengths. Overall, my writing goals are to gather the skills needed to write with a strong enough conviction to help me in not only my business career but in my everyday life as
My expectations for myself is that I push myself out of my comfort zone for writing. I will push myself to write things I normally wouldn’t write. I will try to do all the things we learn and put it in my writing. I will do all the things I can so I become better at writing. To learn what I want to in this class, I will have to do all of my work to my best abilities.
My learning experience in WRTG 101 has been an informative experience. It may be more accurate to say the experience has enlighten me with a few new understandings. My first revelation that I realized very early on is that writing is a perishable skill. I also had to learn that there is more to writing than proper grammar. For me at least, writing takes a lot of pre-planning in order to organize an effective paper.
I also learned that when quoting, the author’s name must always be added in parentheses before the period. I believe my body paragraphs have gotten stronger and more influential because I have conquered these skills. Writing can be a difficult yet rewarding talent. I personally believe I have grown as a writer. Skills that were weak have become strong, and my strong skills have become even stronger.
I believe that it is important for everyone to be able to recognize when it’s time to let go. Although these two strategies have worked best for me in the past, I am committed to using the other revision techniques presented throughout the book in the
EUCLID University’s approach to instruction, reviewing literature, adopting technical procedures, and explicitly embracing the Distance Education and Online Learning platforms are exactly what I was searching for in a doctoral-level program. Several specific focus areas emerged from this coursepack that strike me as main lesson efforts to be mindful of as I progress along my academic development. One is that it can sometimes be suggested that essays and reviews of academic work will lack thoroughness, and perhaps reflect biases of the student or researcher. The systematic tools, references, and explicit procedures used in these instructions makes such occurrences less likely to be problematic, if studied and given adherence. Second, in fields like Diplomacy and International Affairs, which is my specific degree program and focus area, there is a demanding movement towards evidence-based solutions to work those problem sets.
My writing portfolio is an accurate representation of my writing ability. These pieces reflect my ability to effectively communicate my main idea, read and think critically, do research, and learn independently. I enjoyed writing the creative assignments, which also happened to be what I was best at writing. This is perfect because in the future, I plan to be an author, and am already writing my first book. Being able to write creatively directly affects my ability to write a good book without having to steal ideas from other books, movies, or television series.
Thinking about my writing in terms of what it lacked and how that affected the result, has made me a more conscious and intentional writer, which improved my writing process. In many ways it is important for me to indulge in the things that come naturally and comfortably such as brainstorming, freewriting, stream of consciousness writing, and skipping around the page. I still utilize stream of consciousness style writing when I first get a prompt. I appreciate the time and space it allows me to get my thoughts down which is a necessary part to productivity. Beginning on those grounds establishes a foundation from which I can grow my writing.
Along with my sentence structure, I would like to improve my paragraph structure as well, it seems like I am all over the place when writing. Improving these skills will help my organization in writing papers, as well as making them comprehensive. Overall, my technical communication has significantly improved from not knowing anything over the course to being able to write a technical document to the public with ease. This course has also helped me more into the role of my career for society. Before, I was mare focused on what I need to do to reach me dream career and what type of work I would be doing then the problems that need to be fixed, for example, the grand challenge of how to improve and restore urban
This skill is helping my develop my own style of writing which is something I constantly strive to be better at. Since I take more pride in my writing ability it allows me to challenge myself and push my skill set. When we are given time to write a paper, I have began to write many drafts until I finally finish the perfect
What I learned that certain events may occur and it will change your thought over something. The steps I had to take was to write a outline overview of what my essay was going to be like and think about the argument and claims I had to pick to support it and find quotes in the book that support my claims. We had to do timed essay about are theme of the essay were going to on. The way we wrote the essay was in TIED format because it would be easier to introduce the claim and back it up with evidence and finally discuss what it means. The leadership skill I used was to complete project effectively because I had to concentrate what I was writing about.
My strengths as a writer are being able to come up with a lot of interesting topics and getting it on paper but I have challenges when it comes to organizing my paper and trying to tie all the topics together. Based on the feedback from my papers I would say there are many areas I need to work on for example grammar, punctuation and spelling. For me, it is many areas that I need to work on like grammar and spelling I have always had some complications when it came to those two things so I really try to make sure I continue to work on it. To improve my skills, I am going to take advantage of the Grand Canyon Universities writing center and also the tutoring center this will be beneficial to me because it will help me get stronger in my writing and to also get more feedback that will help me grow even more in the areas that I struggle in.
